Happy Holiday's..


Stu Gabriel (MrGun)


One day a man decided to retire...

He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the
time of his life, that is, until the ship sank.

He soon found himself on an island with no other people, no supplies,
nothing, only bananas and coconuts.

After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day when the
most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to the shore.

In disbelief, he asks, "Where did you come from? How did you get

She replies, "I rowed over from the other side of the island where I
landed when my cruise ship sank."

"Amazing," he notes. "You were really lucky to have a row boat
wash up with you."

"Oh, this thing?" explains the woman. " I made the boat out of some
raw material I found on the island. The oars were whittled from gum
tree branches. I wove the bottom from palm tree branches, and the
sides and stern came from an Eucalyptus tree."

"But, where did you get the tools?"

"Oh, that was no problem," replied the woman. " On the south side of
the island, a very unusual stratum of alluvial rock is exposed. I found
that if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into ductile
iron and I used that to make tools and used the tools to make the

The guy is stunned.

"Let's row over to my place," she says "and I'll give you a tour." So,
after a short time of rowing, she soon docks the boat at a small wharf.
As the man looks to shore, he nearly falls off the boat.

Before him is a long stone walk leading to a cabin and tree house.

While the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp
rope, the man can only stare ahead, dumb struck. As they walk into
the house, she says casually, "It's not much, but I call it home.
Please sit down."

"Would you like a drink?"

"No! No thank you," the man blurts out, still dazed. "I can't take
another drop of coconut juice."

"Oh, it's not coconut juice," winks the woman. "I have a still. How
would you like a Tropical Spritz?"

Trying to hide his continued amazement, the man accepts, and they
sit down on her couch to talk. After they exchange their individual
survival stories, the woman announces," I'm going to slip into
something more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and
shave? There's a razor in the bathroom cabinet upstairs."

No longer questioning anything, the man goes upstairs into the
bathroom. There, in the cabinet is a razor made from a piece of
tortoise bone. Two shells honed to a hollow ground edge are
fastened on to its end inside a swivel mechanism.

"This woman is amazing," he muses. "What's next?"

When he returns, she greets him wearing nothing but some small
flowers on tiny vines, each strategically positioned, she smelled
faintly of gardenias. She then beckons for him to sit down
next to her.

"Tell me," she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him, "We've
both been out here for many months.You must have been lonely.
When was the last time you played around? She stares into his eyes.

He can't believe what he's hearing. "You mean..." he swallows
excitedly as tears start to form in his eyes,


"You've built a Golf Course?"
